Spend a day at Childrens Hospital in Boston. Then go home and count your blessings.

Agree, my oldest boy (20 and now healthy) had medical problems at birth so we got to see a childrens hospital in South Bend Indiana and Chicago. Also going to a veterans hospital is a very sad experience, we have a couple of large ones here in Chicago.

Count your blessings

I wholeheartedly agree with you. It only takes one trip to the hospital with a sick or injured child to realize how lucky we are.

Yes, I do know what you mean Sean and I wish you the best with whatever you're dealing with.

My 4 year old just came out of surgery on Friday. We count our blessings that a place like Childrens Hospital in Boston exists and we are additionally fortunate enough to be close enough to drive there at will (though we did get a hotel in town since we had to be in pre-op at 6am).

To those of you who have offered your support and prayers all I can say is thank you so much. He came through it just fine (much better than his dad who had to help put him under - those of you who have had to do that know what I mean - those who haven't, I hope you never have to go through it).

This Friday we go back again for results and it's been a very long agonizing week, but we're glad the surgery went well after waiting months.
